It seems that Trump wants him gone as well, he's just got to figure out a way to get rid of him without heads spinning, drama and whining.

GOP Rep: Mueller is breaking law, must resign from investigation

A senior Republican on the House Judiciary Committee is calling for special counsel Robert Mueller to resign from the Department of Justice’s Russia investigation.

Citing a report stating that Mueller enjoyed “a lengthy, close” relationship with former FBI Director (and longtime ally) James Comey, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., claims Mueller has failed to disqualify himself from serving as special counsel, as required by law due to the conflict of interest.

Mueller preceded Comey as FBI director from 2001-2013, and they knew each other when Comey was working as deputy attorney general for the George W. Bush administration in 2003. During Comey’s 2007 testimony before Congress, Comey described how Mueller was his confidante when Comey opposed the Bush administration’s plan to renew a controversial surveillance program, Fox News reported.........

........“Bob Mueller is in clear violation of federal code and must resign to maintain the integrity of the investigation into alleged Russian ties. Those who worked under them have attested he and Jim Comey possess a close friendship, and they have delivered on-the-record statements effusing praise of one another,” Rep. Franks stated Tuesday, via press release.

“No one knows Mr. Mueller’s true intentions, but neither can anyone dispute that he now clearly appears to be a partisan arbiter of justice. Accordingly, the law is also explicitly clear: he must step down based on this conflict of interest.”

Mueller’s investigation into President Trump is highly politicized, as the investigating team is allegedly chock full of Hillary Clinton supporters seeking to impeach Trump. .........
